Email domains & Office 365 (a real mess)
(A self inflicted mess)
As part of a project to update our school website, a trusted 3rd party purchased the web domain 'nortoncollege.org' on our behalf when they built the site. At the time, we had no plan to utilise any email linked to this. However, now we do.
I'd like to add this as a secondary email domain to our newly accessed Office 365 site which had been set up for us by the local authority, until the domain nortoncollege.n-yorks.sch.uk
Our current email addresses are based upon 'nortoncollege.net' which are also Office 365 accounts, that were set up and looked after by our Learning Portal provider. Long term, this email domain needs to go away as we want to 're-brand' under the .org domain.
What I want to do is
>Add the nortoncollege.org domain to our LA created Office 365.
>Create identical addresses under this (so where I have a SL@nortoncollege.net address, create a SL@nortoncollege.org one)
>Migrate the mail boxes for each user from the .net, to the .org (Microsoft may help here?)
>temporarily have forwarding between the two, while we alert people to the change.
>Use the nortoncollege.org email
I'm stuck at the first hurdle. What information do I need to obtain from the web design people in regards to the nortoncollege.org address in order to add this to the LA version of Office 365?
